In any agreement, particularly those that presume a time frame for response, make sure there's a clause included for your vacation in (select favorite destination). In which case you have a backup service if contracted, or the client agrees they can't declare breach during that time period. Small thing... but I saw one of my fellows in this industry get eaten alive for taking a trip to Belize for a week and unable to get to Cleveland when a client had a severe problem. In other words CYA as much as possible, and is fair to both you and the client.
